Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 17 vs TEN (5 / 8 / 25 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 1 / 0 rush)

It was not the best of days for Tom Savage with his day being littered with quarterback hits and one sack that he did not slide the protection over to pick up to cause a fumble recovered by the Titans in the end zone. Savage worked mainly underneath all game and worked into the second quarter. He was knocked out of the game on a 4th and 1 quarterback sneak where he ended up with a concussion. There were thoughts that Savage would return but that was not happening after never coming out from the locker room for the second half.

2016 Week 16 vs CIN (18 / 29 / 176 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)

It was a tale of two halves for Tom Savage with his first half littered with 3-and-outs. Savage went 2 of 7 for 13 yards and it was filled with 3 sacks. Timing on his drops and some suspect pass protections, it was not a pretty sight for Savage. He had an early completion to Will Fuller for 6 yards but that is about as exciting it got for Savage. In the second half for Savage, the Texans opted to go no huddle and it naturally sped him up. Savage was much more under control and hit 16 of 22 attempts and allowed his receivers work. Savage had some drops around him specifically C.J. Fiedorowicz and DeAndre Hopkins. He had big throws and one went to Akeem Hunt for 33 yards on a simple rail route to beat an all out blitz. he worked underneath and only had five passes over 10+ yards. Fiedorowicz had key receptions for 14 and 12 and Savage tried to get Hopkins going on offense. Hopkins had a drop and two offensive pass interference calls and one wiped out a decent gain for Hopkins. Savage was not flashy but consistent late in the game for the offense and it proved to be a solid game that started slow.

2016 Week 15 vs JAX (23 / 36 / 260 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / 0 / 0 rush)

It continues to be a revolving door for the Texans quarterback position and this time Tom Savage saved the day. Savage came in and provided some life to a passing offense that looked like it had a pulse. Savage got DeAndre Hopkins involved and targeted him 14 times while completing 8 in his direction. Even better is that Savage was able to get Hopkins vertical and target him twice on 20+ downfield. He also hit Hopkins in the hands in the end zone only for Hopkins not being able to bring in after he hit the ground. Savage also went to work with Ryan Griffin and hit him for gains for 18 and 24 while getting him the ball with room to work. The precision of Savage throwing the football was the difference and spreading the ball to 7 receivers woke up a passing game that needed it in the worst way. Savage did have two passes almost picked off but overall his day was a positive for the Texans.
